    This looks like a good deal . Now tell me, prices seem to started coming down for laptops especially gaming ones since I bought my MSI GF63 in October 2020, I’ve just had a look at the prices and they seem to be quite cheap now. Or is it just me?

    hopefully prices of everything will be coming down a bit!

    For anyone interested, the Ryzen 7530U IdeaPad Slim 5 is still available on offer with the OLED and actually a little cheaper. It might be the next best choice, it should also run cooler and last longer on battery.
    thelukeburnett's avatar
    Tempted to return the 6600hs open box/Amazon warehouse laptop I got the other day and go for the 7730U here. Cant decide on OLED over resolution with the screens though

    The link is for the i5 model at the time I tried it
    thelukeburnett's avatar
    Go to Build My PC and remove the OS and change from i5 to i7 for the price above.

    purchased the i5 version of it through one of the recent deals here, but I'm not sure if i d buy it again. The device feels excessively bulky and heavy, which is surprising considering its size. Personally, I prefer a lighter, plastic laptop. It weighs approximately 2kg, while my previous HP with the 5800u processor was only 945g. Carrying this new laptop feels like a significant burden.

    Furthermore, when I open multiple tabs on Edge or any other browser, the screen flickers, goes black, and then returns. It seems that the GPU may struggle to handle the workload. the specifications are decent overall, I wouldn't recommend purchasing it.
    plewis00's avatar
    It's about 1.6kg and it does have an H-series chip. Your HP weighing under 1kg was clearly one of the specialist magnesium-alloy Aero machines and not the norm, why would you get rid of that!

    The screen flicker is likely a driver or possibly hardware issue - I would get that checked out under warranty if you have done all the driver updates.

    you can unexpire it, the code has refreshed again.

    Beast of a CPU!
    plewis00's avatar
    Yes, shame it's not Iris Xe graphics but it does have 64 EUs vs 32 on the i5. This thing will rip through workloads, but last time people were complaining about it running too hot and throttling. Really is a minefield...

    Nice saving for the OLED model, this brings it into ‘good value’ territory, even with the discount before the OLED one was around £630.

    Yeah it'll probably get lost in the prime day chaos though
  9. thelukeburnett's avatar
    May as well pay the extra £20 for a 100w charger and backlit keyboard too.
  10. RustySpoons's avatar
    It's a shame you can't have an LCD with the i7 option. I was tempted to order it and cancel the Thinkbook I'd ordered on another deal.
    plewis00's avatar
    Why do you want that? No risk of burn-in? To be fair, the 2.2K LCD is very good on this model. The ThinkBook should have better build overall but they are close. A lot of people complained about the hinges on IdeaPads snapping over time.

    How do we install genuine windows?
    plewis00's avatar
    Use a USB installer and get a key from somewhere, it is not seamless as you need to fiddle with wireless drivers as the hardware is too new. If it's a pain, buy it preinstalled.
  13. Rockman88's avatar
    Would this run Football Manager quite well? Concerned about it overheating. Hate loud fans on laptops!
    thelukeburnett's avatar
    It will run it without a hitch. Though, who knows about the fan noise.
  14. _T_Q's avatar
    Any idea if its full aluminium or the base is abs plastic??
    plewis00's avatar
    Aluminium lid and base is plastic but decent quality. You need the Pro for all metal.
  15. thelukeburnett's avatar
    Is the integrated graphics just UHD 730/770 or similar?
  16. sparky24's avatar
    Do not buy from Lenovo, I bought a laptop from them through a deal on here. They sent me the wrong laptop and I still have it, it's been three weeks. Customer service is shocking, still no refund. Avoid like the plague. Read Trustpilot reviews.

    Almost placed the order but what the heck¿ It comes with HDMI 1.4b port, no way I'm gonna connect an external screen

    Any extra slot for Ram to upgrade?
    htslough's avatar
    No, soldered only (edited)
  19. londonguy's avatar
    worth an upgrade over the 4800u ryzen ?

    Yep, no issues with that on a 14". Infact it's preferable for me
